SDCC 2020 First Look: Art of Sofubi Book by Mondo

San Diego Comic-Con 2020 First Look: Art of Sofubi Book by Mondo

Yesterday, Mondo held a rad San Diego Comic-Con 2020 panel entitled ““Lights, Kaiju, Action... DESTROY – ‘The Art of Sofubi’ + A Big, Big Announcement” where they showcased a new collection of officially licensed Godzilla merchandise, including statues, soft vinyl figures and tiki mugs. But what got The Blot really excited was news that Mondo is publishing a new book entitled “Art of Sofubi”! It will be released sometime next year (2021).

As Mondo stated, “Sofubi – “sofuto bineeru” (ソフトビニール) – are the otherworldly, jarring, often-disgusting/always-lovable soft vinyl Japanese toys that have captivated collectors all over the world. Two of our resident sofubi spelunkers – Spencer Hickman from Mondo Music and Michael Bonanno from Mondo Collectibles – are teaming up with photographer Robert Howell to explore unbelievable collections and rarities for next year’s Mondo Books release The Art of Sofubi.”

“Finding and photographing multiple sofubi is right up there with capturing genuine Sasquatch footage. But Spence, Mikey, and Robert are devoted to the cause, and are destined to risk life and limb to track down the most mutated menagerie of mini-monsters, and shine a light on one of the most visually arresting and bizarre corners of the limitless pop culture universe.” – Mondo
